A small berg of just over 20,000 residents, perhaps the biggest claim to fame of La Cañada Flintridge is that it is home to NASA’s all-important Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Despite the generally placid nature of the community, the need does arise for professional biohazard cleanup assistance in homes and businesses in La Cañada Flintridge. Professional biohazard remediation provided by locally-owned Eco Bear can be needed for a variety of reasons including:

  • Suicide cleanup
  • Rat droppings cleanup
  • Unattended death cleanup
  • Hoarder cleanup
  • Homeless encampment cleanup
  • Other types of biohazard cleanup

The Importance of Proactive Biohazard Cleanup

If you face any type of biohazard, taking a proactive approach to remediate the situation is vital. The risks associated with any type of biohazard is enhanced when permitted to remain unabated for even a short period of time.

The first step in ensuring a prompt biohazard cleanup is to reach out to a local remediation service serving the needs of business and homeowners in La Cañada Flintridge. Understanding the necessity for prompt action to abate and eliminate biohazards, Eco Bear and its team of experienced biohazard cleanup specialists can be at work on a job in La Cañada Flintridge immediately.

The Unattended Death Cleanup Process

There simply is no way to understate the reality that one of the most traumatic things that can occur during the course of a lifetime is the discovery of an unattended death. An unattended death is defined as one that occurs when no one else is around and which is not discovered for days, weeks or even months. Common causes of unattended deaths include:

  • Accident
  • Sudden health issue (like a fatal heart attack or stroke)
  • Suicide
  • Homicide
  • Natural Causes

Due to the smaller population of La Cañada Flintridge, unattended deaths are not commonplace. Nonetheless, they do happen in any given year. When they do occur, and because of the nature of the human decomposition process, the death scene cannot only be horrific but highly dangerous due to the presence of different types of dangerous pathogens.

Upon discovering an unattended death, 911 must be called to bring emergency personnel to the scene. The LA County Coroner’s Office which responds to unattended deaths in La Cañada Flintridge, will also immediately become involved in the case.

Protecting Your Wellbeing With Professional Suicide Cleanup

Although not a frequent occurrence in La Cañada Flintridge, suicide is a reality in the community. For example, not long ago, an LA County Deputy Sheriff who resided in La Cañada Flintridge was killed by her paramedic husband, who then took his own life. While murder-suicide is an extreme example, it does illustrate the traumatic aftermath that can exist following a homicide or suicide.

If you lose a loved one to suicide, you need not further aggravate your profound grief by personally taking on the task of suicide cleanup. Rather, you can focus on your grief and loss by engaging the professional services of suicide cleanup specialists at Eco Bear. The team at this family-owned business has worked with many families who’ve lost a loved one by suicide.

In order to combat suicide, a lawmaker from La Cañada Flintridge has introduced legislation in Sacramento requiring student IDs to carry the number for a suicide prevention telephone hotline. A 24-hour suicide hotline serving residents of La Cañada Flintridge is 800-273-TALK (8255).

Rat Droppings and High Danger to Your Health and Welfare

Like most people in La Cañada Flintridge, you may assume that the real danger presented by rats is being bitten by them. Of course, vermin of this type can also cause structural and other damage to your home or business. The reality is that you and your loved ones face a profound danger if rat droppings are present somewhere in your home or business. Keep in mind that rat droppings can be found not only in locations like garages but in your attic and between the walls of your residence or business.

Rat droppings can cause potentially deadly infections like:

  • Hantavirus
  • Salmonellosis
  • Rat Bite Fever

If rats and their droppings are not promptly and professionally tended to, you and your family very well may be exposed to one or another of these harmful pathogens. If you attempt to clean up rat droppings on your own, you may actually make matters worse. Without the type of professional equipment and treatment products used by Eco Bear for rat droppings cleanup, you may stir up dust containing rat waste which can end up being breathed into your body, resulting in a potentially fatal infection.

If you suspect a rodent infestation in a public space, blighted structure, or other location in the city, you can contact the La Cañada Flintridge Building and Safety Division at:
